    leslie fucked himself...it's all about the "reasonable person standard" (the judge will most likely use that standard). so the way it plays out, according to the standard, is would a reasonable person believe ryan leslie's statement that he'd give 1mill for his laptop. and since he probably wasn't laughing or coming off facetious on the youtube video he wouldn't be able to say that it was made in jest/he wasn't serious (best defense tho)

    wack. les shouldn't have promised the mil, but i dont see why it should hold up in court when there's a good chance the laptop was illegally acquired.

    HE'S IN THE HOLE ON THIS ONE... HIS ALBUM WAS WEAK WAS GARBAGE....I DON'T THINK HE GOT IT LIKE THAT TO BE HONEST... AND HE BETTER HOPE ITS NOT IN "£uros"

    He should have used his intelligence to do something productive in the world. Dude graduated Harvard at what, 18?! Now he's just making mediocre music, what a shame.

    "At the age of 19, Leslie graduated from Harvard with a degree in Government, concentrating in Political Science and Macroeconomics" how can such a smart dude be so stupid?

  • Music Man

    A lot of you on here are stupid. The reason ryan wasn't going to pay because the reward was for the return of his laptop and hard drive for the music. The music was not on there so the guy shouldn't have gotten the reward. Plus i bet he is the one or one of his friends is the one who stole it and now they just want the money because they aren't talented enough to do anything with the music. So no matter what you people say take your own words and shove them up your ass. Ryan leslie went from having nothing and made HIMSELF a celebrity, Plus he composes better music than a lot of artists out there. Also the only reason you guys hate is because you don't have what he has and your jealous, so you want to treat him like shit.
